when mowing what are good respirator mask and glasses.

Here in Georgia I am running across a lot of dust while mowing and sometimes stuff getting into my eyes. I have tried some nasal mask but they make me feel like I am starving for air. I also tried some glasses but they keep fogging up. Do you guys have any suggestions? Also whats good for ears?

While I'm not advocating that you breathe dust, maybe if it's that dry it doesn't need cutting.

Disposable foam ear plugs for the ears.

Bandana (hence the name "Outlawn") and cheapie Z87 safety sunglasses from Ace. If it does the job in dusty, dirty west Texas, I'm sure it'll do the job in GA. For the ears, I have some nice SkullCandy headphones that do a great job of blocking out sound and debris. I use some Howard Leight slimline ear muffs when on the ZTR. Hope that helps

I use a 3M mask. I use OCC wrap around sunglasses that I bought from TSC. Hold tight against the face and keep stuff out.

Hello ALL...Tim with Wolfsnout here!
I would like to present to you a great product many of you can use. The Wolfsnout® Dust Mask!

Originally designed for hot offload desert racing the Wolfsnout® has set the standard. Turns out that this great product fits right in for other applications as well.

They are super light weight, super easy to breathe through and cooler to use on a hot day when compared to the restrictive land filling through away masks and filters.

One of the coolest things about the Wolfsnouts is the fact that you can use them wet on a hot day.
Rinse them out over and over again. Taken care of they can last for years!
Now that's Eco friendly.
Find hundreds of reviews and comments on the web.

Go here to learn more.

They are 100% made in the USA
